Shoes. SHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOES. We all love shoes. Heels, sneakers, sandals, even flip-flops all have a place in our hearts and our closets. But seriously, some of us have a pretty hardcore addiction to buying and then possibly not wearing our little treasures. Here are 12 signs you’ve possibly gone overboard on footwear and need to seek help.
You have shoes you can only dream of wearing for more than half an hour
Before you want to chuck them over your shoulder and put on some comfy flats. Sad but true.
Every time you open your closet you fear for your life
As yet another 15 pairs of shoes you don’t remember buying fall on your head and squash you flat.
You can’t go into a department store without buying a new pair
You go in just looking for a new work shirt, or something smart to wear to a dinner date – and fifteen minutes later, you’re walking out with no clothes but two new pairs of killer heels.
You can never make your mind up which pair to wear
“I’ve never worn these sneakers, and I feel guilty – they’ll go perfectly with this pencil skirt and pinstripe shirt, won’t they?” said no-one ever.
Your pets have been known to exit your closet wearing shoes you don’t remember buying
There goes Fido in that pair of Manolos…hang on…when did I buy those??? I don’t remember…
You take shoes seriously and hate it when someone makes fun of you
I DON’T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH SHOES. THEY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH ME. ARGGGGHHH!
You buy them, just because they’re in fashion, not because they’ll suit you
Then wonder why everyone mocks your life choices. But hey, they’ll sell on eBay in 2033, then you’ll be laughing.
They’re your only vice.
You can manage without almost everything else, but if someone takes your shoe choices away, you will DIE.
When someone suggests you should clear some space in your closet and get rid of a few pairs
Hell no, sister. HELL NO.
Are you really going out in those?
Well, I am. I am actually, yes I am. They’ll wreck my feet after an hour, but in that time I’ll look hotter than I’ve ever looked in my entire life.

She might have messed everything else up, but she sure as hell knew a good Manolo when she saw it.
